Margo Tennant Moore brings unique experiences, education and training to her legal practice, which primarily focuses on medical malpractice and other healthcare issues. As a registered nurse who has worked in critical care, surgical care, trauma and emergency room settings, Margo has a first-hand understanding of medical protocol and the complex issues that patients and doctors face.

Additionally, Margo is a Certified Professional in Healthcare Risk Management and served as director of patient safety and director of risk management for a northeast Ohio hospital. As such, she implemented safety practices, ensured that each department adhered to protocol and educated nurses.

Armed with that impressive background, Margo uses her law degree to provide clients with keen, nuanced insights into their healthcare issues and cases.

"Margo's background is invaluable," says Chris Mellino. "She's able to provide a different perspective and give us an idea how the defense will view cases or experts. Before we hired her as an attorney, she was doing chart reviews for us as a consultant, summarizing reports and helping us get right to the heart of each case. She's a huge asset to our team."
Though her professional experience is impressive, Margo's personal background feeds her passion for helping others medically and legally.
When Margo was a child, her mother developed multiple sclerosis. Before long, her mother required round-the-clock care. Additionally, she has a son with a lifelong illness.

"I would like to work on medical malpractice claims involving children, because my first-born son has had cerebral palsy since birth," she says. "I'm able to identify with the parents of an injured child. I can definitely relate to that frustration."

In her new role as plaintiff's attorney, Margo would also like to help the underprivileged, especially those who reside in Lorain County, where she was born and raised. Her father and grandfather both served in the military, so she has an affinity for veterans, as well.

Margo is a lifelong resident of Lorain County and resides with her family in Avon Lake, Ohio.
